WHAT IS ASIH?
The American Society of Ichthyologists and Herpetologists (ASIH) is a non-profit organization established to advance the scientific study of fishes, amphibians, and reptiles. ASIH was founded in 1913 by John Treadwell Nichols. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the study of fishes, amphibians, or reptiles. Current research activities span the globe, and include systematics, development, morphology, behavior, ecology, and physiology, as well as many other specialized areas.

The meetings are held in June of each year; reasonable site locations are chosen to encourage student participation.
